Storyline

As part of their experiments in time travel, Drs. Reeves and Takada construct a cyborg "Mandroid" with the body of a downed pilot. After the success of the initial experiments, Reeves decides to have the Mandroid scrapped. Not wishing to be taken apart, Mandroid flees with the help of Dr. Takeda, who is killed for his disobedience. Distraught by the death of his one friend, the Mandroid goes north to America in search of someone who can help him in getting revenge and stopping Dr. Reeves in whatever evil plan he intends to use his time machine for.

Bizarre but awesome with a distinct pulp flavour.
4 April 2016 | by AlienatorXSee all my reviews

Tell me if this plot doesn't excite you; a cyborg who has rebelled against his creator must team up with the scientist who's technology created him, a martial artist with a katana and a river boat pilot to stop the evil scientist form turning himself into a cyborg and going back in time to conquer ancient Rome. Isn't that the most insanely awesome thing you ever heard? Paul De Meo & Danny Bilson (The Rocketeer, Arena, The 80s Flash TV series, Zone Troopers) are great are creating sci-fi movies with a pulp fiction-y flavour to them and this film is no exception. Aside from that the effects are…decent, the action is great, the acting alternates between good and hammy, and the story is fun. Check it out.
